2021 Kumusha Western Cape Cinsault Rose, South Africa
Kumusha in the Zimbabwean Shona language translates to 'your home', 'your roots', or 'your origin'. From Zimbabwean refugee to one of South Africa's most decorated sommelier, Tinashe Nyamudoka crafts Kumusha (Shona for home) as a tribute to his adopted home, South Africa.
Delicate aromatics of red berries and white florals; bright and expressively juicy up front on the palate. The mid-palate is very smooth and slightly savory, and the finish long and round with some vibrancy coming from the acidity. This is a straight up flawless wine at an unbeatable price! Tinashe has never failed to impress with his talent, style and dedication to his passion, making it accessible for all to enjoy!
World renowned sommelier, Tinashe Nyamudoka believes the best wines are representative of their region.

Using a minimal intervention approach and natural fermentation, Tinashe's aim is to let the wine be free to do the talking of its origin and to provide a model for Black wine entrepreneurs to follow.
